Individual Rum & Eggnog Cakes

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by thistleridge

One of my best gargage sale find was a cake mold that has 6 individual bundt pans. You can still buy them new but they are pricey. I have used it to make gingerbread cake too. This is impressive to serve at a holiday meal. Also, an unusual gift.

These smelled so good while baking. Great taste and texture. I only have one individual bundt pan so I used jumbo muffin pans. Recipe made 10 cakes. I used cinnamon almonds instead of walnuts. Yummy!
